Yamaha will not be building cars. Toyota bought a 5% stake in Yamaha last year. Yamaha bought equal value of Toyota stock. Yamaha and Toyota have been sharing engine technology for the auto racing programs in Europe and Japan. Toyota is also making a car for Formula 1 racing. Yamaha is technical advisor on this engine program.
There is a rumor in the auto industry that Honda is considering getting out of the car building business. The rumor is Honda will become a enging supplier to the Big 3. Honda has already made a deal with GM. Honda will get GM V8's for their future full size truck. GM will get Honda motors and transmissions for something they have pending.
